That Awkward Moment When a Chinese Host Thinks Desiigner is Rapping During Interview

On Sunday, Los Angeles played host to the American Music Awards, where international sensation BTS made their first U.S. performance debut.

Also in attendance was GOT7‘s Jackson Wang, aka “that hot Asian guy next to Liam Payne“.

Wang, who hails from Hong Kong, served as a Youku ambassador in addition to lending his support to his BTS brethren.

As part of his ambassador duties, Wang interviewed a number of stars for the Chinese social media site, including rapper Desiigner.

Wang’s interview with Desiigner seemed pretty standard, but part of his crew was, like, really feeling it.

Twitter user Sunnyjiaer first noticed the interesting interview and posted it to her twitter account; it was shortly retweeted by hunnyblush and quickly went viral.

The tweet has since been deleted; luckily, Snoop Dogg captured the hilarious moment for all to see, posting the video to his Instagram.

Netizens, of course, loved it.

According to BuzzFeed, the woman is a Chinese TV presenter named Wenya, who “hadn’t really been paying attention to what Desiigner was saying” but thought he “had a lot of rhythm when he was talking”.

“It was my first time attending the AMAs, and I was really excited because the red carpet felt like one giant party,” she added.

Although she’s bewildered that she went viral in the West, she’s happy to have brought joy to netizens around the world.
